A number of you have emailed me regarding my book and when it will be ready. Unfortunately it has taken me far longer than I had anticipated, but fortunately, it is coming along very well. I had hoped it would be done 4 or 5 months ago, but aside from other work getting in the way, I’ve also spent more time on it, trying to make it as useful and clear as possible.
One thing I’ve been doing, which I haven’t seen in any other martial arts book, is to overlay images so a reader can see “movement” in an image, or see both prior and current positions. Here’s a simple example:
In the 2nd and 3rd images above, you can see “ghosts” of the 1st and 2nd images, along with arrows showing the direction of movement.
I’ve often seen martial arts and self defense books where it’s not clear exactly how a person got from one position to the next. So with this overlay technique, a reader can see exactly what’s going on. It’s taking me much longer to do most of the images this way, and there will be a lot of pictures in this book. I’ve got over 2,000 to choose from.
Anyway, the book is coming along very well. Hopefully I can finish it up sometime in the next two months…by mid October or so. I should be able to get an e-book version done days after I’m finished, but the physical version may take just a bit longer, as I still haven’t decided how I want to have that done.
For everyone who has been emailing and/or waiting, thank you for your patience!
